White bird in Wiltshire

Observed: 16th July 2011 By: wilburii
white bird

Seen near Melksham in Wiltshire at the base of a large tree by the side of a wide green road. It's eyes are closed here but when they were open they weren't red as you might expect with an albino. I think it's about 10cm long.
It didn't look to healthy to me and I've just discovered that someone who came along later in the day has confirmed that it is now deceased.

Could be a little Egret at a guess.

Sorry about the lack of picture. Not sure what happened there!

Anyway, some feedback received locally suggests a white zebra finch perhaps.
